We're integrating healthcare
Welcome to the January edition of the Rosecrance enewsletter. This newsletter contains the latest news about our organization, people, upcoming events, trainings and more. This month, we're highlighting our progress in integrating behavioral healthcare with primary healthcare through a groundbreaking partnership with Crusader Community Health.
We want to hear from you! If you have news to share, email us here.
Rosecrance is a private not-for-profit organization offering behavioral health services for children, adolescents, adults and families.   There are many reasons to give to Rosecrance, but we think changing a life is a pretty good reason all by itself.   There are dream jobs and jobs that help build dreams. At Rosecrance, we don't think these have to be different. Come join our family!
